Our new £4.4 million teaching laboratories have bench space for 216 students and are shared between the Lancaster Environment Centre and the Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences.
The flexible design means that up to four classes can be taught at one time in the two laboratories, with up to 12 students clustered around double benches, having access to monitor screens and speakers which are controlled from four teaching stations.
Ancillary facilities will include cold store rooms, a plant growth room, preparation rooms, a muffle furnace room, 12 fume cupboards, storage space and office space for technical staff. Lockers will be provided in a circulation area so students can follow best practice and leave their coats and bags outside the labs.
The laboratories are used mainly for undergraduate teaching and project work, with some masters level work also taking place there.
